Temperatures hit -20°C last night (-4°F). Under such conditions, our world is transformed -- at least along the river. The cold air hitting the warmer water raises huge clouds of mist.
The sand bar on which the ducks and geese are accustomed to gathering turns into an island of snow and ice.
And the world around us is turned into something of a fairy castle -- suitable for Fairy Nuff, and others.
Ah, yes; it IS that time of year. Soon it will be too cold for taking Sadie out, except for the shortest of walks. Even the birds have gone into hiding.
